As a freelance writer, you may be wondering what are the hottest writing jobs in demand in 2022?

Besides content creation, which is a rapidly growing field, there is another highly lucrative writing industry on the rise.

And that is copywriting.

Copywriting is one of those skills that will always remain in high demand. It will keep growing in the years to come. According to statistics, the job market for copywriters is expected to grow by 7.6% by 2026.

If you think about it: Every business out there needs a copywriter to promote their products and services. They need copywriting services to build their sales pages, their e-mail sequences, and so on.

If you’re a talented wordsmith, you should definitely consider copywriting as a lucrative career choice. After all, it’s the stories we tell through our words that make magic happen.

Through copywriting businesses are able to connect with their customers, grow their brand, and increase sales of their products and services.

As more businesses pop up and show their presence online, there’s more demand for seasoned copywriters who can help grow their brand.

No matter if you’re offering services in landing pages, e-mail sequences, or descriptions of products and services, the demand for copywriters is insane.

Recently, I received a bunch of e-mails from one established copywriter. According to her, even if you have zero experience in the field, it isn’t too hard to break into the industry. But you have to be willing to start at low pay and build it up from there.

If you’re trying to get your feet wet in copywriting, there are many companies out there that can pay minimal rates. They wouldn’t mind if you are inexperienced in the process of learning and practicing.

In fact, some companies are actively looking for these types of writers for a simple reason: they can’t afford a seasoned copywriter with a lot of experience under their belt. Due to their limited budget. So what do they do? They hire someone that is just getting their feet wet in copywriting.

This may be an opportunity for you to break into the copywriting industry. For example, through google search, you can see what companies are hiring and then offer your services to them. Or you can contact businesses directly by sending them a pitch.

Copywriting will always be in high demand and there are many freelance writing opportunities within the field.

So, if you think you’ve got what it takes to be a copywriter, it can be a lucrative freelance career option for you.
